The Royal New Zealand Ballet is delighted to expand the company’s much-loved regional touring programme in 2020, featuring works tailor-made for the RNZB by trail blazing choreographers at home in New Zealand and on the world stage.
A family programme for all ages, watch the dancers of the RNZB perform some of their favourite works.
Inspired by the goddess of the hunt and of the moon, Sarah Foster-Sproull’s Artemis Rising was created in 2019 as a retirement gift for the much-loved former RNZB Principal Abigail Boyle.
Danielle Rowe’s Remember, Mama is a tender look at the relationships between mothers and sons, from childhood to old age.
Berceuse by US choreographer Penny Saunders, a rapturous, deeply musical pas de deux to a lyrical lullaby by Benjamin Godard, was created in 2011 for the ground-breaking contemporary Hubbard Street Dance in Chicago.
Completing the line-up is a new classical work, Wayward, by young Canadian dancer and choreographer Kiara Flavin, who joined the RNZB in 2018.
With tickets priced at just $27-$37 for adults ($12-$22 for children; discounts available for seniors and groups) these special shows are guaranteed to sell fast – book now! Booking fees may apply.
